Paula Perotte Chosen as Goleta’s Next Mayor


Councilmember Paula Perotte was selected to be the City of Goleta’s mayor for the next year, with Jim Farr becoming the new mayor pro tempore. Perotte, elected in 2010, and Bennett, elected in 2006 (along with Councilmember Roger Aceves), were reappointed to the dais this year after no candidates challenged their reelection bids; Farr was elected in 2012. Goleta’s councilmembers rotate the mayor position every year, rather than having a specific election for that position.
